scandal and what has he said about it? >> so far, from what we've heard from defense officials, soledad, john allen has denied any wrongdoing in this matter. what is the matter at hand is on sunday the fbi notified the pentagon that they had 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails, which contained inappropriate contact between general john allen, and jill kelley. yesterday, secretary panetta asked that john kelley -- or john allen's nomination to be the head of nato be pulled back and put on hold while the inspector general starts to dig through all of these pages to find out exactly what happened. here's how it all connects. general john allen was stationed in tampa when he was at u.s. central command. so was general david petraeus. jill kelley worked as sort of a social liaison with a lot of the commanders there. in fact, she's been -- won awards for her work with some of the military families, and the military down there. now, paula broadwell started e-mailing jill kelley. and from what we know, some of those e-mails basically took the tone of, you know, stay away from david petraeus, sort
? >> hi, soledad. what's going on here is that throughout the course of the day we've had a lot of rocket attacks going on here in the ashkelon area. there were six instances where our crew had to go into a hardened shelter because there were rockets flying overhead. i can show you right behind me, there's some rockets right here that have been raining down on the ashkelon area in the past couple of days. most of these are kasem rockets collected by explosive ordnance disposal crews which are doing their work 24 hours a day. needless to say that because all this is going on in ashkelon a lot of the people we're talking to are not really thrilled about the prospect of this conflict coming to an end very soon. we asked them about what they would think about a possible cease-fire. they say at this point they don't believe that their military has gotten the job done yet they were sent out to do. they believe if the military stops now they might have to deal with something like this again maybe in the next couple of months, maybe in the next couple of years. but certainly they say they don't w

. good morning to you, jill. >> hey, soledad. you know, let's begin with that honorary consul general. in tampa, apparently, from what we can understand, jill kelley was totally a volunteer. she was a volunteer with an international organization that greets international visitors, and then also, in some capacity, she was helping to promote a trade agreement with south korea. at least that is the understanding. and in that capacity, the south korean government, according to yonhap news agency, which is the official south korean news agency, they gave her an honorary consul appointment. it has no legal standing. it is not a diplomatic post. it is totally voluntary. and has no rights. so when she is saying there, you know, my property is inviolable, it would appear at this stage to be, let's say, a gross exaggeration of what's going on. but that doesn't mean that she didn't have contacts -- oh, and i should say that yonhap is saying that the south korean government says if this becomes problematic they would lift that honorary consul degree. but they are definitely the administration is
